Latest Lab-on-a-chip Stories
Samuel K. Sia, associate professor of biomedical engineering at Columbia Engineering, has taken his innovative lab-on-a-chip and developed a way to not only check a patient's HIV status anywhere in the world with just a finger prick, but also synchronize the results automatically and instantaneously with central health-care records—10 times faster, the researchers say, than the benchtop ELISA, a broadly used diagnostic technique.
ALine is a finalist for the prestigious Patrick Soon Shiong Innovation Award.
Brigham Young professor Adam Woolley and his students have developed a new "lab on a chip" (LOAC) which will help with diagnosing diseases long before current detection methods could.
Have you ever had a solution that needed a problem? No, I'm not saying that backwards. That's the strange predicament that Peter Willis and his team at NASA's Jet Propulsion Laboratory found themselves in recently.
A technique that uses acoustic waves to sort cells on a chip may create miniature medical analytic devices that could make Star Trek's tricorder seem a bit bulky in comparison, according to a team of researchers.
Scientists at the Gladstone Institutes have gotten us one step closer to understanding and overcoming one of the least-understood mechanisms of HIV infection—by devising a method to precisely track the life cycle of individual cells infected with HIV, the virus that causes AIDS.
Lab on a chip (LOC) devices—microchip-size systems that can prepare and analyze tiny fluid samples with volumes ranging from a few microliters (millionth of a liter) to sub-nanoliters (less than a billionth of a liter)—are envisioned to one day revolutionize how laboratory tasks such as diagnosing diseases and investigating forensic evidence are performed.
Researchers at Oregon State University have tapped into the extraordinary power of carbon “nanotubes” to increase the speed of biological sensors, a technology that might one day allow a doctor to routinely perform lab tests in minutes, speeding diagnosis and treatment while reducing costs.
A new kind of flexible, transparent pressure sensor, developed at the University of California, Davis, for use in medical applications, relies on a drop of liquid.
Tiny metallic nanoparticles that shimmer in the light like the scales on a butterfly's wing are set to become the color-change components of a revolutionary new approach to point-of-care medical diagnostics, according to a study published in International Journal of Design Engineering.
Lab on a Chip is a peer-reviewed scientific journal published bi-weekly (24 issues per year) by the Royal Society of Chemistry (RSC). It was established in 2001 and hosts RSC’s other publications: Highlights in Chemical Technology and Highlights in Chemical Biology. The editor-in-chief is Harp Minhas. Lab on a Chip publishes original primary research and review articles on any aspect of miniaturization at the micro and nano scale. It covers a variety of disciplines including chemistry,...
